(Excessive?) Vocalization

Luna, my 4 month old Himalayan/Ragdoll cross is very, very vocal! As I type this, she is upstairs crying non-stop at a housefly on the window. The last few nights she has been waking me up in the middle of the night crying (She sleeps with me). She seriously cries like she is a human baby! She has been crying more often over the past couple of days. Is it possible she is in pain from new teeth coming in or something? Or is she just becoming more outgoing? She has always been vocal & has been known to carry on conversations with me. I wonder if it could go all the way back to her Siamese ancestry (since she is half-Himalayan).

There are just some cats that are vocal. Moosey is vocal. She will meow for no reason. Just walk around and meow. If I talk to her she usually stops, but other times she just keeps doing it.

My sister's cat meows and cries ALL THE TIME. She is very very vocal.

I read somewhere that the more you talk to a cat, the more vocal they are.

(Excessive?) Vocalization

Some cats are very vocal for no reason. My youngest cat never meows, only chirps when she's playful. My ragdoll meows loudly only when She wants food/attention or if she wants in a room that the door is closed. My other cat, Anna, is most vocal when she wants you to play with her. She will literally scream in the basement and if no one comes down, she will run up with a toy in her mouth and drop it at your feet. They are all so silly.

Plus, cats usually only "meow" when they want to communicate with humans. Hissing, chirps and growling plus tail signals are how they communicate with other cats and animals (although I have read that dogs can't tell cat tail signals because some are opposite of dogs).

Maybe she was saying to you "Hey, Human, there is a little creature up here. Get it for me!"

Cheddar is also a very vocal cat. He'll talk to me, meow when he's playing, meow at the wall, talk to Sadie, and sometimes just walk around making noises... I love his meow too, so I tend to encourage him! It's a deeper meow, not the squeaky or higher pitch meows of many cats, and he has such a range of noises too. Very entertaining (unless it's the middle of the night... but thankfully he doesn't do that very often!)

Zephyr is extremely vocal. Just his personality. Maisie is almost silent so they balance out into one normal cat.

Is she spayed? If not, the increased vocalization may be her first heat. Better get her done, quick!

Some cats do just have a lot to say.

I have noticed Zigs has gotten a little more vocal lately. She is going to be spayed tomorrow, so this may help.

(Excessive?) Vocalization

Simba has a number of different vocalizations - some of which only occur at 3 am. When I first adopted her it freaked me out; I thought she was possessed a la "The Exorcist". Now I know the voice is just her way of amusing herself in the middle of the night. But I still wonder what she's saying.
